Kristen Bell REALLY Loves Sloths

If you ever do something awesome for Kristen Bell and she has a total meltdown, just remember that her crying is her happy face. This clip is awesome. Especially the part where her boyfriend video-taped her breakdown.

Hey Arnold Grown Up

While we are still in the 'animation' realm, this picture found its way into my inbox. If anyone knows the original author definitely let me know so we can give some credit but so far I can only find other sites that have featured it. Looks like Helga turned into one hot badass. I guess that goes to show what a dress and some conditioner can do. Funny how Arnold still looks exactly the same.

Hipster Princesses

Behold! Another take on the Disney Princesses. As if there weren't enough already.

Belle actually makes a pretty good hipster. And yes, I am aware Anastasia isn't Disney but I'm still glad she was included.

UPDATE: The artist is viria13 and she is awesome. Her deviantart page is filled with a bunch of Harry Potter drawings in addition to the Disney.

Awesome art by Patsie of Katniss from the Hunger Games. Even if you aren't a fan of the series (in which case you should pick up a copy and begin reading immediately), this is still a great piece of art. Her use of color is something I haven't really seen before. She's also done drawings of different characters from the series but otherwise is a pretty new addition to Deviantart. I look forward to seeing her other art in the near future.

Fi Annoys Link

Perhaps it's because I haven't been able to put Skyward down since I got it for Christmas but I found this video to be hilarious. Fi is seriously just as annoying as Navi which is probably the only downside to the game. Just because "hey, listen" has been replaced with a loud glowing sound doesn't mean I won't be pissed when she tells me for the 50th time that I need to replenish my hearts.

Fanmade Star Wars as it has Never Been Seen Before

Alright, here's the gist. Fans from all over were each given 15 seconds of Star Wars: A New Hope to recreate and make their own. Then each 15 second cut was put together to give us an entirely fan made version of the film which was then posted on YouTube. Here's the full version. Honestly, I only made it about 20 minutes in and then I started jumping around a bit but some of these are truly clever. 26:50 and 1:35:09 made me giggle quite a bit.

Umm What?

As a huge Resident Evil fan, it should say a lot when I say I've had enough. One can only stay loyal to a series so long before breaking down from disappointment. However, I did see Michelle Rodriguez which means I will still be forking over my well earned money to find out how she worked her way back into the franchise. At least we can be guaranteed some sweet, zombie-killing goodness.

Liam Neeson the Comedian

My friend showed this after Ricky Gervais hosted the Golden Globes. Good to know Liam Neeson has room in his schedule for some comedy on the side of punching the shit out of wolves. Let's be honest, The Grey looks like a comedy too.

Archer Premier tonight

Get ready for the season 3 premiere tonight! I'm ready for a whole new round of yups and nopes.

Desktop of the Week

Why? Because what isn't awesome about an epic battle between Teddy Roosevelt and Bigfoot? Click the picture for both a bigger size and to see the link to the awesome deviantartist, Sharpwriter. He's also drawn some other epic battles like George Washington versus Zombies and definitely deserves your attention.

I stumbled across this today and just had to share it with you guys.  I know Hilary will at least get a kick out of it.  The Pillarfield Ox is a personal favorite.

See the rest of the gallery!!

I'm a big fan of Jason Isaacs but I've rarely seen him play anything but a bad guy. Lucius Malfoy, Captain Hook, even that evil Redcoat guy in The Patriot, but this show presents an entirely new character for him. Awake looks extremely interesting and promising and I can only hope that enough people watch it for NBC not to cancel it. Unfortunately, NBC cancels everything that isn't an instant success so the outlook is grim for Awake. I can't really find a concrete release date for the show yet but sometime in the next few months seems to be the most reliable release time.

Pizza Planet Truck

I thought this was a cool complement to Megatron's post from a few days ago. Some seem like a stretch but I guess that one truck really is in all these movies. Props to them for fitting it in both A Bug's Life and Finding Nemo.

Thank God for the Internet

Considering that this is my blog and I can do whatever the hell I want, I would like to present you all with a montage of the many scenes of Tom Cruise running. Enjoy.

Umbrella Clean Up Crew

As a huge fan of the Resident Evil games, it only makes sense that I would feel the need to share this with all of you. In this new cinematic trailer, we really get to see what makes the individual abilities of each character awesome and how much fun the game can be. Between this and the Hunger Games movie I'm going to have a very busy spring break.

Pixar Magic

I had no idea about this, but apparently the pizza planet truck from toy story has also made cameos in every movie since with the exception of The Incredibles.  Gotta love the little things in life.  Check out where to find it in each movie here!

Cool Trailers

Here are a couple of movies coming out soon that I knew nothing about until today. Go figure.

They had me at Steven Soderbergh and Ewan Mcgregor but this film is packed with big names and cool fighting. It made me think a little of Colombiana what with the whole 'girl kicking ass' thing and the plot isn't all that original. It's pretty easy for me to get psyched for a movie though.

No idea about this one. Looks bitchin'

30 Anticipated Games of 2012

I'm a gamer. And although it contradicts the last post I play games more than I read. Luckily, today's video games bring a whole new art to storytelling. The narrative in games like Bioshock or Zelda give gamers a gift. Not only are we just sitting down for mindless Call of Duty matches or a classic game of Tetris! Oh no, current developers encourage us to ask for more. That is why I am so looking forward to the games being released this year.

IGN just posted their 30 most anticipated games of the year and many of them look to be great additions to any gamer's library. Granted, there are still 'just for fun' fighting games like Street Fighter Vs. Tekken and Soul Caliber (which I will be buying on release day) but some others, like The Last of Us, will present a new avenue in creativity.

Also, as a side note, doesn't it seem like we are getting overkill in the sequel range? I'm loving every sequel mentioned on the list but they seem to be overpowering the stage for something new. Just a thought. Full IGN article here: 30 Most Anticipated

Generation Illiterate

I can't be the only one here who is severely disappointed with what is happening to today's teens. NO one reads books anymore and even e-readers are a stretch. I suppose if it takes an iPad to get people reading that is better than nothing but there is something about turning actual pages without the blinding back light that makes books special. I even own a kindle but constantly switch between an actual novel and the digital type. My children will be forced to do reading the way my grandparents did it: by moving their finger one inch and turning the damn page!

I'm Back!

I can only assume that the frustration on Gollum's face matches your own for not seeing updates to this site. No worries, people. I'm back and ready to show you more awesome stuff from the internet community.
